1997 COW Award Speech, presented to Bart Miller

This year's students have spoken, and they have spoken loudly. Two professors both received more votes than in any other year I've seen. The winner, setting a recent and perhaps all-time record for votes, is Bart Miller.

I had the excellent privilege of having Bart for 736. The class was one of the most interactive I've ever had, with Bart encouraging participation and fostering discussion every step of the way. In addition to teaching me much about operating systems, he also emphatically taught me the importance of being on-time, one day when I was late to class. Outside of the classroom, his efforts with our undergraduates, specifically the UPL, are widely appreciated. So it is both my privilege and my personal joy to present this year's COW award to Bart Miller. Congratulations.
